READ ENTIRE LABEL BEFORE EACH USE.

Do not allow children to apply product. TO PREVENT HARM TO YOU AND YOUR DOG, READ ENTIRE LABEL BEFORE EACH USE. FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS AND PRECAUTIONARY STATEMENTS CAREFULLY. DO NOT USE ON RABBITS. DO NOT USE ON OTHER ANIMALS. DO NOT USE ON CATS. May be toxic and potentially fatal if applied to or ingested by cats. FOR EXTERNAL USE ON DOGS ONLY. Do not use on puppies under 12 weeks of age. Weigh your dog to be sure you are applying the right dose formulated for the weight of your pet. Do not treat your pet with more than one pesticide product at a time. Over dosing your animal can result in serious illness and even death. Best if used year round. Certain medications can interact with pesticides. Consult a veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, medicated, pregnant, or nursing dogs. Consult a veterinarian before using on dogs with known organ dysfunction. DO NOT USE ON CATS or animals other than dogs. Separate the treated dog from all other dogs and cats for 24 hours after application. Cats and dogs that actively groom or engage in close physical contact with treated dog may be at risk for serious harmful effects. The most common signs of ingestion are excessive salivation and foaming at the mouth. If these symptoms occur immediately feed your dog and continue to monitor your dog for the next 24 hours. If symptoms persist, contact a veterinarian. Cats exhibiting these same symptoms from ingestion should be taken to a veterinarian immediately. If your dog is exhibiting signs of and/or is being treated for skin dermatitis, talk to your vet before applying any topical flea and tick control product.

If signs of sensitivity occur bathe your dog with a mild soap and rinse with large amounts of water. If signs continue, consult a veterinarian immediately.

How to open: Remove product tubes from the package. Separate one tube from the others. Holding the tube with notched end pointing up and away from the face and body, cut off the narrow end at the notches with scissors.

How to apply: While holding the dog with one hand, use the other hand to apply the solution. Invert the tube and use open end to part dog’s hair. Apply contents of one tube of Parastar™ Plus as a spot to the dog’s back between the shoulder blades. Hold the dog for a few seconds to give the solution time to be absorbed into the dog’s coat. When finished, wrap the tube in paper and put into trash. Only one applicator per treatment is needed. Repeat applications may be made if necessary, but do not apply more than once every 4 weeks.

Use Parastar™ Plus monthly for complete control of flea, tick and chewing lice infestations. Studies show that Parastar™ Plus kills fleas for up to 30 days. If your pet is at high risk for flea reinfestation, or in a highly infested environment, apply monthly. Apply monthly to control ticks and chewing lice.
